What a great weekend!

I am so pleased with all of the progress we made over the weekend. For starters, I have been dying to get some furniture in the front sun porch, seeing as though it's pretty much useless without it. I went down to Target to check out this set that I've had my eyes on for the last 2 months and to my surprise it was 10% off. Not only that but I had an additional 10% coupon plus I got another 10% off of the love seat. Total I saved about $80-$90. I just had to yap about it because there is nothing better than getting a good deal on something you love. Good thing I waited! The only bad thing is that now I want to begin redoing the front porch.

Onto the big projects. We finally started removing the huge weed bushes that have turned into trees. We removed 2 big bushes/ roots by digging down and using the chainsaw. I'm hoping the bushes don't grow back but I guess we'll just have to attack them as they come. It's already made such a difference by removing them.

We got the landscape design back from the lady @ Indigo and she did an amazing job. We will hopefully begin planting our trees and shrubs 2 weeks from now. There weren't any hostas in her design so, to use of what was already in the yard, I planted a row of them on the side of the house that people don't really see. We also planted 2 trees, one to the right and 1 to the left of the driveway. Everything is really starting to look nice.

On top of all of this, it was my nephew Luke's 4th birthday today. Nothing like a child growing to make you feel like you're really getting old- or just growing up. Ok, getting old. My nephew and neice are so cute! Why can't they live a little closer.
